Join us as we celebrate and honor new work created by students in YPT’s In-School Playwriting Program. Out of more than 850 eligible plays, these 12 playwrights distinguished themselves with their imaginative and compelling scripts.

On April 22, join us as we present seven fun, family-friendly plays, delving into worlds where contemporary teens meet fairy tale princesses and the battle of cats and dogs gets a super-powered twist.

On April 23, five of our older students present daring new works, exploring themes that range from the struggle to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Sandy to a sloth with an appetite for humans. **Plays on April 23 may not be appropriate for children under age thirteen.**
